CCNEPal goes trekking August 2015

I will be away from this blog for a few days.

I’ll be backpacking in northern Maine on the Appalachian Trail.

Here is a link from a past trip to that area.

In general, any blog entries on the hike will go to my other blog,

Somehow, I don’t think anybody will miss me. But if you do, please read through the entries at the right and enjoy.

the meantime – best wishes to all my friends, Nepali and videshi alike!

About Joe Niemczura, RN, MS

Experienced nursing educator and problem-solver. I have fifteen years of USA nursing faculty background. Add it with fifteen more devoted to adult critical care. In Nepal, I started teaching critical care skills in 2011. I figure out what they need to know in a Nepali practice setting. Then I teach it in a culturally appropriate way so that the boots-on-the-ground people will use it. I travel outside of Kathmandu Valley as well. When the recent violence happened, I knew the cities - I had trained people in those locations. One theme of my work has been collective culture and how it manifests itself in anger. Because this was a problem I incorporated elements of "situational awareness" training from the beginning, in 2011. Global Health Nursing is not all sweetness and light; not solely milk & honey and happy moms and babies.
